Digicam dunked in marinade revived

<p />Well, I bought my bro-in-law a new camera after dunking his in a bowl of marinade. Now I have my own little (too little) digital camera. After a week or so, the auto-lens-cap that was not opening due to the sticky marinade now opens up. And evrything else seems to work.....though it still smells like marinade.[p]I took a few pix of dinner tonight. Just some chicken breast strips marinated, rubbed, skewered and glazed. [p]I am now a digicam owner, and have the power...OH the power....of taking instant pix. Shaweeet!! A good ending to a horrible story. Lesson learned....use the wrist strap when you have big hands and a little camera.....especially when you are a klutz.[p]Life is good...and sometimes better than expected.

    Nature Boy,[p]Well, I'm certainly glad you got YOUR cam fixed. [p]Now, tell us the good stuff. How did ya marinate, what was your rub, and what was the glaze? I hope they were as good as they look. Obviously your skewerin' skills are better than your camera fumbling skills. HA~![p]Thanks!

    <p />BubbaGump,
    LOL. Yeah, I am purty awkward with that camera. It is about as big as a deck of cards. I bet it won't be the last time I drop it. Hopefully next time it will choose a dry spot to fall on.[p]Yeah, they tasted purty good. I could be onto something. For the marinade I threw in some sesame seeds that I toasted, peanut oil, some fresh minced ginger, oyster sauce, a little fresh lime juice, turbinado sugar a little Tsunami. Marinated for about 90 minutes, then threaded onto the skewers. Shook on a light coating of Tsunami, and grilled about 7 or 8 minutes over an established medium-hot fire. [p]For the Qfan-inspired glaze, i sauteed some shallots and more fresh ginger in a little peanut oil, added a half cup of orange juice, and reduced to 1/4 cup, then mixed in a bunch of honey. Dats it! It was a lot of I got to play with the camera!

    Nature Boy,[p]Nice shot, mang. The chicken on those skewers look sweet![p]Something tells me that you and your deck of cards camera are going to raise the level of photography on this board up a full notch. [p]Would you have those ready for me tomorrow for lunch?[p]

    Nature Boy,[p]How do you ever come up with this stuff. I don't even know what a shallot is or where I would find such a thing as turbinado sugar in the grocery. What's the diff in turbinado and regular sugar???[p]Thanks!
